This is a weekend long, park-wide, BioBlitz centered around National Public Lands Day. It will be a great opportunity to connect to these parks through community science. On Saturday September 22nd park entrance will be free as part of a nationwide celebration of our public lands and there will be an orientation at the Lodgepole Visitor Center at 10am that morning.
The event will be focused on the Giant Forest and Lodgepole area where we have a diversity of habitats with meadows, streams, montane forests and of course, sequoia groves, however any observations within parks' 865,964 acres over the weekend can be recorded.
As always a goal is outreach and connecting people to their public lands through science. We would also love to enrich our understanding of of under-cataloged taxa such as insects, arachnids, bryophytes and fungi, so folks with a passion for these or other organisms are warmly welcomed. And please share with any friends and colleagues that you might feel are interested.
There is an eventbrite sign-up to help track interest:
